UC - financial eligibility - proof of earnings - testimony, written records

Kearsley v. UCBR – Cmwlth. Court – 11-28-17 – unreported* memorandum opinion

Held:  UCBR erred in rejecting claimant’s testimony about her wages and her 1009 form, without making any credibility findings, and in holding that written pay stubs were the only competent evidence of her wages.
*An unreported Commonwealth Court case may not be cited binding precedent but can be cited for its persuasive value.  See 210 Pa. Code § 69.414(b) and Pa. R.A.P.  3716
